SkyTools 3 Interactive Atlas
SkyTools Interactive Atlas is like a fine atlas on your
computer. This tool by itself encompasses the
functionality of most competing software.
Context Viewer is a window attached to the atlas that
simulates the field of view of a telescope for a selected
eyepiece or camera. The field of view (FOV) is drawn on
the atlas as a circle for eyepieces and as a rectangle for
cameras. As you drag the FOV on the atlas the context
viewer displays a simulation at the current location. If
the telescope is connected to the computer, the FOV and context
viewer will simulate where the telescope is currently pointed;
drag the FOV on the atlas and the telescope will follow!
your observations with the best tools available -- the
SkyTools Nightly Planner is powerful and efficient.
SkyTools databases are second to none -- the best data
is drawn from multiple catalogs and sources, and is highly
the most of imaging with the image session planning tools --
the imaging quality as a function of time graphically, suggest
optimum sub-exposure times for image stacking, estimate the
final signal-to-noise ratio, compute the number of stacked
images required to obtain the desired signal-to-noise, and
